MOOC: The Seven Year Itch
I am looking forward to speaking at NJEDge.Net's 15th Annual Faculty Showcase on March 28, 2014.
Last year, I spoke about Massive Open Online Courses just ahead of teaching one myself. That was "Academia and the MOOC" which was offered with NJEDge.Net through Canvas Network last spring.
This year I will be back as the lunch plenary and I'm calling my talk "MOOC: The Seven Year Itch" since the MOOC is now 7 years old.
If 2012 was the "Year of the MOOC", then what happened in 2013 - and what will become of the MOOC in 2014?
I will give an update on the past year in Massive Open Online Courses and a sense of how they are really impacting education and training.
The morning speaker is Dr. Erin Templeton an Associate professor of English at Converse College and a fellow lover of poetry. But for this audience, it is more that she is a regular contributor to The Chronicle of Higher Education blog, ProfHacker.
